New York State Education Dept., Albany. Information, Reporting, and Technology Services.
The New York State School Report Card is an important part of the effort to raise learning standards for all students. It is designed to provide information to the public on student performance and other measures of school and district performance. The 2000 report card has been changed to focus on measures of student progress on the new standards. This guide provides an overview of the changes, answers frequently asked questions, and contains descriptions of the state testing program and other performance measures. The Report Card contains an overview of academic performance, including results for some new tests and school and district statistics. The report compares the performance of a school with that of similar schools and compares the school district results with statewide results. The second part of the Report Card, the "Comprehensive Information Report," presents 3 years of results on other state assessments in addition to those covered in the overview. (SLD)
